    I was thinking this but didn't put it on my review...but as for the Shadows of Mindor..did anyone else get a laugh at Luke's comment about his so-called that he didn't care for red-heads, 2 abrasive women.

    Umm...Mara, Luke (LOL)

    Thanks Jade_eyes, Hazel, Demendora, Briannakin, EmeraldJediFire and ginchy for reading and taking the time to comment. Yes, that movie is the prequel to Luke Skywalker and the Dragon's of Tatooine from my fanfic Shattered Ties. :p


    ENTRY 27

    Today was really a bad and emotionally draining day. My feelings have alternated between shock, fear, sadness and determination.

    First came the shock—my brother and I are asked to meet with Grand Master Luke. When we get there Ben is also there and looking pale. Uncle Luke told us to sit down.

    “I am not sure what’s going on,” my uncle said, “but the local law enforcement precinct asked if you three would come down to the station to answer some questions.” Uncle Luke looked at us expectantly, like we would have some clue as to what was going on. “Any idea as to what they want? They wouldn’t tell me.”

    We all shook our heads. The Grand Master gave us a grim look. “I have taken the liberty to procure a lawyer to accompany you… and I’m going with you.”

    We all sat stunned and looked back and forth between each other. We had no inkling as to why the police would want to question us.

    Then came fear—we get to the precinct and two police officers, one in his late fifties and the other in his thirties, came into a conference room where we were sitting. We have a Bothan lawyer with us along with the Grand Master. The police looked a little shocked at the amount of people there, but our lawyer said they couldn’t question us alone if we requested a lawyer. Only Uncle Luke could be asked to leave.

    The law enforcement officers simply shrugged their shoulders and sat down across the table for us.

    “We are hoping you could help us on a criminal investigation.” The older of the two policemen said. “We have reason to believe there is a Force-Strong male in the area committing sexual assaults on young women.”

    Frack! My heart started beating wildly right about now because I’M ALWAYS blamed for things I didn’t do.

    The younger policeman chimed in. “Last night at Coruscanti University a female student was accosted in her dorm room. She doesn’t remember anything about the assault, but her boyfriend entered her room just as a man was attempting to undress her. The boyfriend fought with the man before he was forcefully shoved across the room by what he said was ‘an unseen hand’. He said it looked like some of the special effects seen in Jedi action holos.”

    Uncle Luke took on a frosty look. “I hope you are not suggesting it was any of my Jedi!” He looked at me, Ben and Jaden. “And I can guarantee these three young men would never be involved in something so reprehensible. I have known them since they were born!”

    The older officer gave us a disarming smile. “They’re here only as potential witnesses.”

    My uncle looked confused. “I’m sure if they witnessed a crime they would have reported it. Why are they here exactly?”

    “When the boyfriend bloodied the perpetrator’s nose and we extracted DNA from the blood left at the crime scene. We ran the DNA through our databanks that included DNA from criminal and civil cases. We got a hit. It wasn’t an exact match, but it was a familial hit from DNA collected from the Talon Tantiss vs Sara Katarka paternity case.”

    I was confused. “Familial hit? What’s that? What does that mean?”

    My brother turned to me. “It means one of the people providing DNA for your paternity case is related to the perpetrator.”

    A sick feeling came over me. Ben, Jaden and I gave DNA samples. The only male relative I have that is Force-sensitive is my father. My uncle Shon and Jaycen and their kids don’t have any Force sensitivity. On Ben’s side of his family he has his father and his twin brothers. I know the twins are strange, but they would never do something so despicable.

    All this went through my mind in the few seconds before the officer clarified the situation. “The DNA familial hit came from Sara Katarka’s unborn child.”

    And then there was sadness. “Sara was a victim of this creep?” I asked. Now I really felt bad for her.

    The older officer nodded. “We believe so. We don’t know if there are only two victims or multiple victims. This second woman doesn’t remember this man entering her apartment or the confrontation between them. She remembers entering her apartment and then seeing her boyfriend fighting with a man.”

    “He’s doing a memory rub,” Luke said ominously. As soon as the words were out of his mouth I realized why Sara was so adamant that I had to be the father. She REALLY didn’t remember having sex with anyone. If the night we met was the only time she was drunk…then she would have every reason to believe she was impregnated that night.

    The two officers focused their attention on my uncle. “A memory rub? So they don’t remember? Is that common knowledge with Jedi?”

    My uncle shook his head. “No, I don’t teach the technique. It can be done by a Jedi, but it is considered a darkside technique.” My uncle looked up at the officers. “You see the darkside…”

    The officers raised their hands. “I think we’ve seen enough Jedi action holos to understand the basics.”

    “Yeah, I loved Shadow’s of Mindor,” the younger man said with a smile.

    My uncle closed his eyes and groaned. He hates all the Luke Skywalker holofilms.

    “Or The Taming of the Jedi,” the older man said with a leer.

    Despite the seriousness of the situation, I had to bite my lower lip to keep from laughing. I’ve never seen it, but I have heard of that particular film. It was a Luke/Mara domination skinholo. Ben must have heard of that porno because he started coughing in an attempt to disguise a laugh.

    Uncle Luke turned bright red. “Can we please get back on topic?” His words came out through clenched teeth.

    “Sorry,” the senior officer said with a sheepish look. “I know you don’t believe the criminal is one of your Jedi…but I need to know, do any of your Jedi know this technique? Perhaps they learned it somewhere else?”

    My uncle’s eyes narrowed. “There are a couple Jedi that have knowledge from another…source. Did the boyfriend give you a description of the man?”

    One officer read from a notebook. “Average height between 1.7 to 1.8 meters tall, brown hair, clean shaven, probably in his late twenties.”

    I could see my uncle let out a breath of relief. “The men that might know the technique don’t fit the description. One is 2.1 meters with red hair and beard. The other has a shock of white hair and is taller.” He looked over to the police officers. “You have our full cooperation. I am certain this criminal is not a Jedi.”

    “We don’t think so either.” The officer smiled at Luke. “Like I said, your Jedi are here because they might be potential witnesses.” He turned to us. “Did any of you notice anybody watching or stalking Sara Katarka the night you accompanied her home to her dorm?”

    I shook my head. “There were two sleemo guys at the club that tried to fight us over the ladies, but they weren’t Force-sensitive.”

    “How do you know that?”

    I looked over to Ben nervously. I don’t know if he wants his father to know he used a Jedi mind trick to get rid of these guys.

    “I used a Force suggestion to make them leave,” Ben volunteered the information.

    The officers looked at each other. “So you can suggest something to someone and they do it?”

    “If they are weak willed,” Uncle Luke clarified.

    The younger officer started taking notes. “So a Force-sensitive could have knocked on the second victim’s door and simply said, ‘let me in’ and she might have let him in without a fight?”

    “Yes,” Uncle Luke admitted.

    “So if one of us catches this guy he might say, ‘let me go’ and we might do just that?”

    Luke nodded. “It’s possible.”

    The older officer sighed. “Master Skywalker. I think we need to bring some Jedi in to help us then.”
    And that brings me to the feeling of determination. I want to help! I want justice for Sara and the other victim. I immediately volunteered my assistance. Ben and Jaden quickly offered up their help also.

    We talked to the officer for a while about a plan. It was determined that a couple Jedi females might act as decoys. Jaina’s name was immediately brought up. We couldn’t decide on the second Jedi at that time. When we left the station we had a plan of action. I want to get this guy!

    Super post. =D= Very much the rollercoaster of emotions there. I can just bet Talon and Ben and Jaden would be questioned because of being in a similar kind of criminal proceeding before, even though the charges were disproved. There'll always be those who will be ready to believe in their "guilt." :p LOL on the L/M films [face_mischief] They're famous LOL with reason. They're insatiable love machines [face_laugh] [face_dancing] But it's only because they're with each other. No one else could get that reaction :D

    Thanks Demendora, Hazel, Briannakin, Jade_eyes, and EmeraldJediFire for reading and taking the time to review. In a galaxy where there is the Force and there seems to be a ton of people having sensitivity I would think not all would use the power for good. I once said there should be a SW book dealing with Force-sensitive criminals but since I was over in the Lit Forum I was immediately trolled saying that would ruin SW. You were either Sith or Jedi. I sometimes wonder if a majority of the people over there are either 15 year old boys or just people with anger management problems. They get butthurt really easily. I really don't think it is a stretch. Why be a Jedi and risk your life when you can be a Force-sensitive con man or worse.


    Entry 28

    This was an exciting week. I sort of like doing undercover work.

    Since the two known attacks happened in the Coruscanti University dormitories the police decided to do surveillance in those areas. The University had a few empty rooms and a team of Jedi was assigned quarters. We would go undercover as college students. This wasn’t a stretch for Jaden since he already was in college there. He was able to show us around. The school had their maintenance personnel place surveillance holocams in the hallways and lobbies of all dormitories and there were roaming surveillance hoverdroids patrolling the campus.

    Jaina and Jysella were picked to be the female decoys and they were set up in a room together. There was holocameras in their room, but they had an override button for privacy when they were dressing. All the other cameras were in public areas.

    Jaden, Ben and I were down the hall in a four-man room. Inside there was an array of monitors set up to watch what the surveillance cameras were recording. There was a fourth man in our group named Erek Gowen. Erek was a Coruscanti law enforcement officer assigned to make the official arrest. He was a light skinned human with brown hair and eyes and a baby face that made him look much younger than the twenty-eight years he claimed was his age.

    He was a nice enough guy, but he had an insatiable curiosity about the Jedi…especially when he was bored. And I soon discovered that surveillance, although it sounds exciting, can be mind numbingly boring when nothing is happening.

    One night we were sitting around the monitors watching the students come and go on campus when Erek decided to bombard us with questions.

    “Can you guys read my mind?” he asked us one night.

    “Sure,” I replied.

    His eyes went wide. “Really?”

    “Of course,” I said with a grin. “You were thinking you wished you didn’t have to be stuck with us boring Jedi but instead were hitting up on some of those hot co-eds.” I pointed to a group of well-endowed human females walking across the viewing screen.

    His eyes went wider. “Damn, you can read minds!”

    Jaden smacked me on the shoulder. “He can’t read your mind, Erek. He was just telling you what he was thinking.”

    “Oh,” Erek said with a laugh. “Can you turn invisible?”

    “We three can’t…yet, but it is possible,” Ben offered. “I’ve read about it, but you’d probably have to be a Jedi Master that trained on the technique for years. It is a rare ability. It is much easier to get sentient beings to not pay attention to us. We can distract them.”

    “We can also use the Force to mess with the electronics of holocams,” Jaden told the man. “So if our perpetrator is a Force user, he might be doing that. Take notice if cameras start getting filled with static.”

    “Will do,” he said with a nod. “Can you see the future?”

    We all shrugged. “We are taught that the future is always in motion,” Ben explained. “It is not fixed. Therefore if we have visions it may be the future or a possible future. We can never know for sure…that’s probably why none of us are financial investors.”

    Erek grinned. “I saw this skinholo where a Jedi used the Force to enhance sex, is that possible.”

    “Yes,” all three of us Jedi answered simultaneously.

    I started chuckling. “Ben, I’m surprised. I thought you were taught not to use the Force on trivialities.”

    Ben gave me an incredulous look. “Since when is sex trivial?”

    “Good point,” I conceded.

    “What’s it like?” Erek asked.

    “I’d rather not say,” Ben said as he pointed to me. “Talon here has a habit of repeating things I say to his Master…which is my mother.”

    “Did any of you go out with that hot Jaina Solo Jedi?” Erek asked obviously not knowing or remembering that other than Jsyella we were all related.

    “No!” Ben said harshly. “She’s our cousin!” He pointed to Jaden and me. “The Solo, Skywalker and Tantiss families are all related to each other.”

    Erek looked at each of us. There was Ben with red hair and freckles, Jaden with a dark complexion, hair and eyes and me with blond hair and blue eyes. We couldn’t look more dissimilar from each other. “I wouldn’t have guessed. You all look so different.” He scratched the side of his head. “Yeah, I forgot that Skywalker and Organa-Solo are brother and sister.” He looked over to me. “How is your family related?”

    I gave him the false story we have been telling people for two decades. “Our father is the brother to Mara Jade Skywalker.”

    It was a believable story. Dad dyes his hair the same color as Mara’s and he has the same color eyes…also dyed. Aunt Mara has no recorded documents about her past and neither does my father, since Luke found him in a cloning facility. So there is no datapad trail that could disprove the tale.

    “Oh,” Erek said then paused for a moment in thought. “So have you guys been with just Force users or regular women?”

    “Both,” my brother said which surprised me. I didn’t know he dated any of the female Jedi.

    “Which is better?” Erek asked.

    “You get in a lot less trouble with non-Force users,” I said. “They can’t figure out you’re lying when you tell them that you love that hideous dress they're wearing…and no, it doesn’t make their butt look fat.”

    “I agree.” Ben laughed. “I know my dad often gets in trouble with mom when he tries to get one over on her.”

    “I prefer dating Jedi,” Jaden said. “I like a relationship on an equal footing.”

    I gave him a sly look. “And which female Jedi are you dating?”

    He shook his head. “I am not dating any at the moment. Before I started college I spent time with a few Jedi ladies…they’re all Knights now and off on missions.”

    “Older women! You were dating older female Jedi?” Now I was really intrigued.

    My brother shrugged. “They were only a couple years older.” He shook his head. “I’m not going to discuss this further.”

    “Come on!” Ben begged for more details. “You can’t leave us hanging like this!”

    My brother blushed but relented. “I guess it wasn’t a secret. I’ve dated Tia Kai and Karana Sirja.”

    My jaw dropped. “The Dathomirian witches?” I put my hands out in front of my chest about fifteen centimeters. “You mean Tia, the lady with the great pair of…”

    “Hey!” my brother interrupted me. “Don’t be disrespectful. They were both nice women.”

    “I’ll bet,” I had to say with a smirk. “Did they claim you as a mate, toss you onto the bed, and take turns ravishing you like true Dathomirians?”

    “I didn’t date them at the same time!” My brother said hotly. He hesitated for a moment before he continued. “But yes, they were a bit aggressive.”

    “HA!” Ben let out a loud laugh.

    “Okay, no more talk about my love life.” He gestured to Erek. “Next question.”

    “Can I see one of you levitate something?” Erek said after a moment of thought.

    Ben rolled his eyes. That is one of those questions we hear all the time. “We’re not circus entertainers.”

    Erek looked a little disappointed. “It’s just boring watching these screens. We have been looking for the bad guy for three days with no hits.”

    “Fine,” Ben said as he pointed to a bag of snack chips on the desk and made it levitate off the table.”

    “Boring,” I said then reached out with the Force and forcefully pulled up the back of Erek’s elastic underwear waistband. The man gave out a surprised shout and then glared at me.

    “Did you do that?” he asked angrily as he tried to rearrange his underwear in a less painful position. “Stang, what are they teaching you at the Temple?”

    Jaden punched me in the arm again. “They’re not teaching us that.” He laughed. “I taught him that…the hard way. I have to admit, I used to pull that prank on my brother…a lot.”

    Erek gave up trying to rearrange his underwear through his pants and instead opted to use the ‘fresher for some privacy. “I’m glad my brother didn’t have the Force.”

    When he came back he looked at his wristchrono. “Why don’t we try something different?” He pulled out his datapad and typed in a few notes. “Why don’t two of you go out with the Jedi females for a while? Then bring them back and have them act like they’re drunk and leave them in their room. Maybe that will get the perpetrator to take notice.

    We all shrugged our shoulders. “Sounds good. Who wants to go?”

    “You guys can go,” Ben offered. “I’ll stay here with the monitors.”

    So Jaden and I called on our comlink to Jaina and Jysella telling them our plan, we met and decided to go to a local pub…and that is when the night became interesting.

    I will write more later on about what happened.

    Thanks Hazel, Briannakin, Demendora, Jade_eyes, EmeraldJediFire for reading. I thought I would post this for Mother's day...of course I am not sure if any of you are mothers...but we all have or had a mother so most people celebrate the day in some way. I was going to sleep in this morning but my son was banging around in the family room early in the morning. He was cleaning up the huge mess he and his brother made this week. What a sweet guy...he got me exactly what I wanted...him to clean up after himself. lol!


    Entry 29

    Okay, this is what happened that night.

    The four of us went to a local club. We ordered non-alcoholic versions of some of the mixed drinks at the bar and made a show of being tipsy. We then started back to the dorms. As we drew near the building Jysella must have decided she wanted to pursue an acting career because she was really getting into her ‘drunk girl’ persona.

    She leaned on Jaden and sometimes pretended to stumble so she could grab hold of my brother and hug his waist. She looked up to him and grinned. “You are so sexy,” she slurred.

    They were walking ahead of me and Jaina, so I had a great view of Jaden’s startled jump when Jysella grabbed his buttocks and squeezed. I looked over to Jaina as she chuckled at my brother’s discomfort. She was walking next to me pretending to be slightly unsteady on her feet. I looked back to my brother and Jysella and noticed they had stopped. Jysella had both her arms around Jaden’s neck and gave him an evil grin. “How about a kiss, my stud muffin?”

    “I don’t think that’s a good…” That is all Jaden got out before Jysella pressed a firm kiss against his lips. The shock that radiated off my brother was laughable.

    Jaina and I stopped to watch my frantic brother trying to peel Jysella off him. I am sure he didn’t like the idea of Jysella’s Jedi father, Corran Horn, running him through with his lightsaber after hearing about this...but this did confirm my long time suspicion that Jysella had a schoolgirl crush on my brother.

    Jaina gave an amused snort. “Your brother better watch out, Jysella is jailbait.” Meaning my nineteen-year-old brother could be thrown in jail for contributing to the delinquency of a seventeen-year-old minor.

    I shook my head. “That’s not true. Although the drinking age on Coruscant is eighteen the legal age of consent is actually sixteen.”

    I always thought it was odd that you couldn’t drink until you are eighteen, but you could have sex at sixteen. Maybe the authorities didn’t want teenagers to have drunken sex until they were adults…but sober sex was fine.

    Jaina gave me a disgusted look. “I can’t believe you have that little tidbit of information committed to memory.” She shook her head. “And here I was thinking that your bad reputation was the creation of the sleemo media.”

    “It is a creation of the media.” I gave my cousin my most innocent look. “I’ll have you know it was your brother who informed me of that particular law.”

    She looked at me perplexed. “Jacen?”

    I laughed. “No, Anakin.”

    It looked like Jaina was going to question me further but then she gave me an understanding nod and a roll of her eyes. Anakin started hanging out with his future wife when he was sixteen and she was thirteen. He probably looked up that information to stay out of trouble. That would probably explain why he looked so happy during Tahiri’s sixteenth birthday party. Ha! I bet he had a special package for Tahiri to unwrap that night. I’m kidding, I’m sure Tahiri was a nineteen-year-old virgin bride after dating Anakin for six years. Ha! Yeah, sure.

    I looked back just as Jaden managed to untangle himself from Jysella and started walking back to the dorm without her. “Oh come on Jaden, don’t be that way. I’m too drunk to walk on my own,” Jysella laughed with a fake slur.

    Jaden stopped, shook his head in frustration, and then returned to Jysella.

    “No funny business,” he warned her.

    “I wouldn’t think about it,” she said with a devious smile and then returned to holding and leaning into him.

    Yep…I am one hundred percent positive that young Jysella has a thing for my brother. It’s too bad that he’s attracted to older women. Older, wild women if the things he said earlier were true. I have a hard time imagining my shy brother taking on a Dathomir witch, but then I never imagined he could kriff-dance like he did in that club that night during the Fashinfest. Jaden is full of surprises.

    We were walking into the dorm when Jaina grabbed a hold of my arm and leaned toward me. For a horrifying second, I thought she was going to pull a Jysella on me…a disturbing thought when you consider she’s my cousin. Fortunately she simply wanted to talk to me unheard. “Do you feel something in the Force?” she asked me.

    I spread out my senses and I did feel something. I felt watched. “Somebody is watching?”

    “Yes,” Jaina said. “We’ve attracted somebody’s attention.”

    I nodded as we moved inside the dorm. “What do you want us to do?” Jaina was the ranking Jedi on this mission and was calling the shots when it came to us… even though Erek thought he was in charge.

    “Drop us off as planned, but keep a visual on the monitors and keep in constant audio contact.”

    I nodded as we got to their room. We said our goodbyes and went back up to our room and waited for the perpetrator to strike. We waited and waited and waited.

    “Jaina and I were sure somebody was watching us,” I said while getting bored.

    “Maybe he’s waiting to get a woman alone,” Erek ventured.

    “That’s possible.” Ben got on his comlink. “Jaina…maybe we should pull out Jysella and give him a lone target…what do you think?”

    “Sounds good. Somebody come down and get her. I don’t want the bad guy trying to grab her. I want to be the bait.”

    “Will do,” Ben said. He then turned to Jaden. “You want to go down and get your girlfriend?”

    He frowned. “I don’t have a thing for Jysella.”

    Ben smiled. “Maybe, but I saw on the monitors how she was hanging all over you. Therefore it wouldn’t seem odd if you are the one who goes down to get her.”

    Jaden groaned but went down to pick up Jysella. After a few minutes he returned with the grinning seventeen-year-old. I know this isn’t Jysella’s first mission, therefore I think her exuberance over this assignment had something to do with working with Jaden.

    We watched the monitors for another half hour before we saw a man fitting the perpetrator’s description entering the dormitory hallway.

    “Jaina,” Ben called on his comlink. “We have movement. We’ll wait for your signal.”

    “Okay, I’ll leave the comlink mic open.” Jaina responded and we saw her put the comlink down on a desk.

    We watched the monitors as the man came up to Jaina’s door and stood outside for a moment with an intense look of concentration on his face. I am pretty sure he was using the Force to figure out who was inside the room. After a moment he pushed the door activation panel, which Jaina purposely left unlocked. He quickly entered the room as soon as the door cycled open.

    “Who are you? What are you doing here!” we heard Jaina call out doing her best to sound distressed.

    “Calm down,” the man said. “You will be silent and do as I say.”

    Jaina gave him a confused look and ran a hand through her hair…which was our signal that he was attempting to use the Force to subdue her. Of course he would have to be a powerfully trained Jedi to affect Jaina.

    “That’s the signal,” Ben said as we all stood. He looked at Erek. “We’ll subdue him and you will make the official arrest.” He pulled out his lightsaber. “Talon and I will go in first. Jysella and Jaden will be our back up. Erek coordinate with the police and have an air ambulance standing by.”

    "And air ambulance?" Erek looked concerned. “Do you think Jaina could be in danger?”

    Ben laughed as we exited the dorm room. “No, the suspect is the one who's in danger.”

    We ran down the hall until we got to the room. We pressed the door panel and rushed in, lightsabers blazing, surprising the criminal. He quickly pulled a vibroblade out of his pocket and grabbed Jaina putting the blade under her neck. “Don’t move! Or I’ll kill her.”

    We paused for a second, not because we were worried, but we didn’t know if Jaina wanted to handle this guy by herself or not. The fact that she let him grab her told us she wanted to take the time to make sure he had enough crimes committed and recorded on holocams to convict him before she went into action.

    Jaina looked at us pretending to be scared. “Please, listen to him.”

    I looked over to Ben who shut off his saber. I followed suit. Jaden and Jysella were still in the hallway and hadn’t activated their sabers yet.

    The man gave a smug look. He pulled Jaina a little closer to him, his blade still hovering under her chin. “If anybody tries to stop me, this kriff’n rot’slot will die!”

    My jaw dropped and I could feel shock radiate from all the Jedi…and not because we were concerned for Jaina’s safety. We were shocked that he used the term rot’slot. That is one of those forbidden words that should never be said to a woman. That expletive was one of the seven words banned on the holonet. If you wanted to call a woman something that would guarantee to infuriate her…rot’slot was the word. All men in the galaxy know you don't say that word unless you never, ever want to get laid again! And your involuntary celibacy would not be restricted to the woman you insulted because I guarantee the offended lady will angrily tell all her female friends who will get onto the holonet social media to spread the news and before you know it you are totally unkriffable.

    Oh boy. This stupid di’kut just ordered up a large order of kick ass and Jaina was ready to dish it out.

    “Okay,” Ben said holding up his hands in a placating gesture. “Don’t do anything crazy.”

    A feeling of nervous anticipation suddenly came over me. The perpetrator must have sensed my unease causing him to smirk. It’s too bad that he didn’t realize I was worried about what Jaina was about to do to him. Although she is Force shielding I can see in her eyes she was about to strike.

    He gestured at us with the vibroblade, foolishly taking it away from Jaina’s neck. “You two get out of…” That was all he got out before Jaina struck with the speed of a Corellian sand panther. She took a slight step to the right and then brought a powerful hammer fist strike down into the man’s groin.

    Ben and I both flinched and unconsciously brought a hand over our groins in an almost sympathetic gesture. As the man screamed Jaina ducked under his upraised arm holding the vibroblade and positioned herself so his arm was now perched over her left shoulder. She then reached up and grabbed the man’s wrist and turned it ever so slightly so his elbow was now resting on her shoulder. She then forcefully pulled down his arm using her shoulder as a fulcrum until his elbow bent in a direction that it was never intended to bend.

    The man screamed again and the vibroblade clattered to the ground. She kicked it away as she spun to the right bringing her elbow crashing into the right side of his face. Blood, and I think a tooth, splattered against a far wall. Jaina completed her spin until she was behind the man and facing the same direction. She then did a leg sweep bringing the injured culprit crashing to the ground.

    This all happened in less than a second or two, but my mind was racing so fast that it appeared to happen in slow motion. Jaina put a knee on the man’s back and held his head down with a hand. She then looked up at us and raised an eyebrow. “Well…is anybody going to cuff this sleemo?”

    “Erek,” Ben called out. “All clear.”

    Erek rushed in with his stun cuffs as Jaina moved back to let the law enforcement officer work. He cuffed the man’s left hand behind his back but when he reached for the intruder’s right hand he hesitated when he saw it bent in a completely unnatural manner. “Stang!” he muttered hesitant to touch such a gruesomely twisted limb.

    “For Sithsake,” Jaina swore as she bent down and grabbed the man’s right hand and wrestled it back so Erek could slap the other cuff on his wrist. The perpetrator screamed at the movement of his broken arm… and for a second I almost felt sorry for him…almost. He shouldn’t have been sexually assaulting women, or trying to take Jaina hostage and he definitely shouldn’t have used the R-word when referring to the second best female Jedi in the order (My Master being the best) and probably the third best Jedi warrior overall after Luke and Mara.

    Erek pulled the man to his feet and looked at us. “I need somebody to accompany us to the hospital. I don’t need him to pull a Jedi mind trick on me or the ambulance driver.”

    “I’ll go,” said Jaina, which caused the suspect’s eyes to go wide and he started freaking out and begging Erek to keep that ‘psycho rot’slot away from him’. Erek grabbed the man’s injured arm and jerked him around so he was facing the officer. The man screamed at the movement.

    “Don’t you ever use that word again!” Erek snarled. He didn’t clarify what he would do if the man did repeat the word, but a threat was implied. Erek looked at Jaina and gave her a flirtatious smile. “I’m sorry about my prisoner’s manners Jedi Solo.”

    I was shocked when Jaina didn’t roll her eyes at the officer’s obvious interest…instead she smiled. “Thank you.”

    Ha! Now I think I know why Erek was so interested in knowing more about the Jedi…he had his eye on Jaina. I guess he would like to see what Force enhanced sex is. Ha ha! Good Luck buddy. Jaina likes pilots.

    Erek looked at us. “I need a volunteer to go with me.”

    “I’ll go,” Jaden said. “I suspect that Jaina, Talon and Ben will have to go to the station to give their statements.”

    “I’ll go with you Jaden,” Jysella offered. I thought Jaden was going to say no, but he simply nodded.

    We did have to go down to the station. There we spent four hours filling out long, detailed reports and giving a full account as to what happened. I couldn’t help but feel good about taking a criminal off the streets. Hopefully he will be convicted and I will find some justice for Sara.

    We still don’t know who this guy is. He refused to talk to the police. I didn’t recognize the criminal…and since I grew up at the Temple I was positive this wasn’t a knight or ex-knight/Apprentice. That was a relief. We didn’t need anybody sullying the reputation of the Jedi…well, any more than I do.

    It would be interesting to know where this guy learned to do a mind rub and mind tricks. It is possible it is a self-taught talent. If so, it’s a great waste of potential. He might have become a Jedi Knight if he didn’t decide on a life of crime.

    Uncle Luke is working with the police to ensure this guy doesn’t escape. I think he is recommending stuncuffs and sentry droid guards.

    Well, that was fun! I wonder if they'll figure out who the guy is.
